The White House has a de facto Friday deadline to settle on fixes to help insured Americans keep their coverage, or House Democrats will back Republican-proposed changes to Obamacare, CNN reported Tuesday.
Chief congressional correspondent Dana Bash said that "the political pressure and the political desire from Democrats to at least do something is growing by the minute."
"What is going to happen in – this week – on Friday is House Republicans are going to put a piece of legislation on the House floor for a vote that will at least, in some way, shape, or form suggest that people can keep their healthcare," she reported.

Bash reported that a source "said that they believe this is almost a de facto deadline for the White House to come up with a fix."
"Because, if they don’t, you're going to see more and more Democrats defy the White House and vote for this Republican bill in the House," she reported.
Bash also tweeted her report:
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said Tuesday that the White House is opposed to both Democratic and Republican keep-your-plan proposals.
"We see that as throwing the baby out with the bathwater," he said, Roll Call reported
